Hon. Noah Davis,

New York.


For special reasons, made known to me by the Treasury Department, I have thought proper to retain the Hon. Edwards Pierrepont, as a special assistant to you in the prosecution of Joshua D. Miner in the Circuit Court of your District, and enclose a commission which you will deliver to Mr. Pierrepont.

I learn that this appointment is acceptable to you.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

E. Pierrepont retained
Special Ass't U.S. Atty.
